Agree with Smithn, dont worry, that is only ganglion cyst, you could ask doctor to remove that cyst.

A general surgeon can remove these very easily.

It's probably a ganlion cyst. I had one removed 4 yrs ago. Mine was right between nerves. It didn't seem to big to see it but the Dr. said that it was the size of a globe grape.

You can't remove it yourself. You'll need to see a surgeon.
